    Okay - I'll agree to that, but then as PP said, maybe we should go around talking about eating our "artificial tomato sauce" with our "artificial drink" - which none of us do, even though we all know crap food is bad for us, and causes bad health, we still don't do it. So why do it about formula, unless to get a dig in.

    I've had two c/sections. And while I'm not offended by the term artificial birth, I can see how others would be. So I would never call it that.

    Yup, it's very much each to their own. I accept that both the c-section & formula was what was best for my son, but obviously I still have some bitterness that was the way things had to go.

    nowhere - its not letting me quote sorry. But I have no idea how you got that perspective from my post. Im utterly confused. Of course children are fed things other then BM for medical reasons, I don't follow what you are saying or why. But I hope my comment didn't offend you because it wasn't even in relation to 'why' children are fed with things other then BM.

    Im confused by your response too tbh?? Granted I didnt have much sleep last night so maybe im not making sense.

    I just find the comparision ridiculous - nothign to do with medical reasons for birth sytles or feeding styles - just that they aren't comparable??

    I agree!

    Call it whatever you like - if you need to fill your days by micro analysing the semantics surrounding birthing and feeding to make another parent feel crap then you need to get a life. I agree with Dreadlockfairy - artifical losers!

    For what it's worth my bubba was born into this world via c section. We can't wait to celebrate his BIRTHDAY! "Removed via surgical procedure day' is too long for the invites.

    Agree! my head is spinning.

    But I do think it's a shame that there's such sensitivity around the formula-feeding issue and that people feel so bad about not being able to BF.

    I don't find the term inflammatory, it is what it is! It can certainly be used in that way though and I can also see how it might affect some mothers, therefore I wouldn't use it, there is no need for me to say Artificial Breast Milk when talking about formula and it's way harder to say, way too lazy for that!
